If they really wanted picks instead they could have waited until the draft to do this deal.
You're assuming he holds much weight as part of a package.
And at the draft, Pirri would be an RFA, who would lose his waiver-exempt status the following season.. this way, Florida gets to try him out for the rest of the season and see where he stands heading into next season.
